Yes, RAMDISK N /D

Where n= number of 16KB chunks, and /D is an option to destroy a Ramdisk created previously.

17659-0
Extracted from the EXDOS manual.

I usually create a batch file, an ascii text file named something like this: NAME.BAT

Then, inside the file you can put something like this text:

:cls                                                  ;erases the screen
:echo Creating Ramdisk E:                    ;this is printed on the screen for your information
:ramdisk 2 /d                                      ;change the 2 for the number of chunks you need
:vol e: SP Ramdisk                              ;this is only if you want to name the volume
:copy F:\SPGAMES\*.* E:\                   ;this copies all the games on the previously created directory SPGAMES to E:
:E:                                                   ;this selects the Ramdisk as the current drive

Batch files can be created with WP, but to save the file you use F3, PRINT, then write the name of the file adding the .BAT tag. Press Enter and it is saved.

Every time you want to play with the emulator, previously you must type ":LOAD NAME.BAT".

The games are copied, when finished, you only type ":ZX".

Thanks for the info! I have the 1MB expansion in my Enterprise.
Silly question: what is the command for creating a ramdisk? :-)
If I remember well:        :RAMDISK /n
Where n is a number of 16Kb blocks, :RAMDISK /4 will define a 64Kb RAMDISK.

I have the same error, some incompatibility with the SD-reader, as the emulator works with floppies(I can't actually test this).

My solution is to create a Ramdisk and load there the games. The Hardware emulator will work perfectly loading the games from E:.

The only problem is, you need  more memory than 128K to load on the Ramdisk more than two games.

Maybe Zozo can fix soon  the Emulator Rom.

I'am using the SD-Card interface together with the spectrum emulator made by Pear.
When I try to load a Spectrum tap file from C: with the command :zx test.tap the emulator starts and
shows "Tap-Read-Error".
When I start the emulator with :zx and then in the emulator load "" I also can't load a file
Pear thought you might have an idea whats happening?

I had detachable male joystick connectors from some cables I bought from Ebay to make my joysticks EnterMice compatible.

They are the exact measure for the 7 pin edge housing that the Monitor and Printer ports need.

With a saw and a cutter y have modified them a little. The square mouth, the side channel and the upside guide.

For not being careful enough I've made some scratches on the case, but it looks good, right?
